  1. Key Issue Comic Mobile App

    Also, where do the valuations come from?
  2. 'PLANET COMICS' (is deserving of its own thread)

    Got a couple submissions back last week. This is my favorite Fiction House title by a long ways.
  3. I don't think it's all that critical. I've completed hundreds of transactions here buying and selling, and maybe 2% of those are a legit invoice. The others consist of, "Hey, your total with shipping for _____ is $____, please send payment to seller@paypaladdress, and I'll update you with shipping information when I get it on the way. Thanks!" That's part of what makes this community so great, this transaction notwithstanding. It's all casual and friendly, typically. One of the problems I see in this scenario is the ability to edit PMs without seeing an "edited by ______ at 1:42 PM." That's troubling.
  4. Bad form - Not PC - or just Bad taste ?

    There's been plenty of examples of poor behavior in comics. The early interactions between Ant-Man and Wasp, for example.
  5. Bad form - Not PC - or just Bad taste ?

    Perhaps it was supposed to be a kind of tongue-in-cheek story that only a few insiders would know about that made it into the final cut? Maybe an editor/artist/manager from a competing publisher, that had a reputation for being heavy handed with his wife? Either way it's not funny, but sometimes perception is worse than reality.
  6. the ridiculous L.A. post office

    Why do you think they won't insure? I've insured plenty of packages with both companies as a shipper and recipient.
  7. Captain Aero run

    I didn't notice this until now, but that attacking plane looks like it has French markings on the underside of the wings, and this was published well after the fall of Paris. Interesting! Maybe this was a De Gaulle plane?
  8. Cgc and brittle pages

    I've also seen books with the BRITTLE designation have significantly different final grades, regardless of appearance. There needs to be some consistency in that arena as well, or at least some way of determining why one brittle book grades much lower than another, when overall appearance is very similar. There's a Captain America 37 in the marketplace now with a 2.0 brittle grade with detached cover and centerfold. I just got a recent submission back that graded 1.0 brittle, even though everything is attached, and overall appearance on my book is far and above better than the Cap. A little transparency would be lovely.
  9. Social Media and You

    The only social media I'm active on is Instagram, and that seems to have a really large comic community. It won't take long to get involved with others who have the same interests as you.
  10. Okajima pedigree

    There are only a handful of books from 1943 I believe, and this is one of the earliest. My '43 book is from December and doesn't have the date code either.
  11. Captain Aero run

    Amazing run, thanks for sharing it!
  12. The 2017 ComicLink show 'em if you got 'em thread

    I can see that would be aggravating as a seller, but I'm a self-serving buyer, so I don't care.
  13. The 2017 ComicLink show 'em if you got 'em thread

    Same here. I find the bid extension does nothing more than encourage me to pay more than I wanted to initially. With CL, I enter my max bid towards the end of the auction and let the cards fall where they may. Win some, lose some, but I never walk away feeling like I paid more than I should have. CC and Heritage make me want to get into a competition with other bidders, because it's aggravating to see someone outbid you over and over. If you don't want to get sniped, make sure you put your max bid in before the auction ends. You'll never get "sniped" again. If you lose, it's because someone was willing to pay more than you.
